    Shasta region back on-line/ On battery back-up

    After a week of storms and power outages the power to the cellular and back-haul facilities
    that serves the area feeding CARLA 20 was restored around 9am Saturday morning (2/16/19). This
    is where we have the temporary VoIP/RoIP connection via Allstar located to back-feed the Shasta
    region Hub since the relay at CARLA 25's site burnt down in 2018 due to the Carr fire.

    All the CARLA systems in the Shasta area have remained on the air during this time despite
    being on battery power but were isolated from the rest of the network until this morning. The
    region still has a LOT of outages and people without power or communications so we're asking
    that everyone please keep your traffic very brief and only as needed so we can leave the other
    systems on-line as long as possible if people need to use them.

    Thank you for your cooperation and assistance letting others know who are not on this email
